It’s been a while since I’ve written something remotely close to personal on this blog. It’s mostly Doctor Who and geek news now, and I probably need to mix it up a bit with stuff from my life. I can start by giving you a rundown of the four new albums I have on repeat at the moment.
Alright, let’s begin!
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – Chasing Yesterday
Oasis was an amazing band. Noel Gallagher drove much of Oasis’ success, and his second solo studio album in a row, Chasing Yesterday, proves that he’s come a long way from Wonderwall. Even though he’s still using mostly the same chords.
Kirby Krackle – Mutate, Baby!
I’m a big fan of this Seattle-based nerd-rock band, and although Mutate, Baby! does not have a song as catchy as Ring Capacity from E for Everyone, songs like The Yellow King and The Day My Powers Arrived are still fantastic.
Modest Mouse – Strangers to Ourselves
I still don’t know what to make of this new album from Modest Mouse. I’m really liking Pistol (A. Cunanan, Miami, FL, 1996), but this album deserves a couple more listens for me to really dig it.
Toto – Toto XIV
Yes, I love Toto. Shut up. Their former bassist and one of my bass heroes, Mike Porcaro, just died. This may be their last album ever. Show them some respect.
